Sharpens the knife quietly.
NC veteran third baseman Park Seok-min (38) did not show up during the team’s Tucson spring camp practice game. As the two matches against KIA were canceled due to bad weather, he missed all three matches against Cheongbaek, one against the WBC national team, and three against KT.
Coach Kang In-kwon made it clear even before the start of the Tucson spring camp that he would give Park Seok-min a chance this season “first.” He was declared the starting third baseman all season. With the departure of Yang Eui-ji (Doosan) and Roh Jin-hyeok (Lotte), the weight of the lineup is dropping, and it is only right that Park Seok-min is used moderately to supplement the long hitting power.
Coincidentally, Park Seok-min also has a different attitude to prepare for this season. He lost weight at personal training in the Philippines, and at the spring camp in Tucson last month, he set a good example for his juniors with his sincere appearance throughout. However, there was no way to check the actual performance of the training.
In the practice game, instead of Park Seok-min, Seo Ho-cheol, Do Tae-hun, Kim Su-yoon, and Choi Bo-seong took turns playing. Do Tae-hoon flew with a batting average of 0.462, and Seoho Railway also had a batting average of 0.294, which was fine. These two are the players who should play as the main backup this season. Spring camp is a time to check the skills of many players and decide how to utilize them.
In the case of Park Seok-min, he is a player who does not need to prove his skills anymore. For the past two years, he had a hiatus due to a violation of the Corona 19 quarantine rules and a drinking wave, and he also suffered minor injuries. If you prepare properly for the season, there is a good chance that you will show a different side of yourself. 스포츠토토
There is a high possibility of participating in the demonstration game. Anyway, Park Seok-min needs to check the results of training without any burden before the opening game, and also check the defense of third base. However, as much as we confirmed the growth of our juniors during the spring camp, we need to have appropriate tension.
The annual salary was reduced from 700 million won to 50 million won, a decrease of 94% or 650 million won. With the minimum annual salary, if you do better than the past two years, you can be reborn as a ‘cost-effective’ third baseman. Even last year, there were players in their mid- to late 30s who revived, such as Park Byeong-ho (KT) and Roh Kyung-eun (SSG). Anyway, the start of the game is the opening game on April 1st.
